Virtual Poster Session

MCQST2021 Virtual Poster Session

At MCQST we do like a good challenge. This might include solving the mysteries of the quantum realm or even organizing an interactive virtual poster session – we do not shy away from such tasks.

The poster session will take place in a virtual 3D environment, which simulates a conventional poster session. The space consists of seven gallery rooms, where posters are displayed on virtual walls. We do our best to offer a similar experience to the classic poster sessions, with an emphasis on interactions. You just need to bring your own beer and pretzels.

To get a peek into the various exciting research presented at the poster sessions during the conference (19 -23 July), we invite you to browse the poster pages, and watch the 1-minute video pitches created by the researchers presenting at the poster sessions next week.

During the conference, participants are welcome to visit the poster rooms at any time - posters are on display and accessible during the entire conference. However, during the official poster session times, the presenters are available for questions.

Officially, there are two poster sessions at MCQST2021. During this time, conference participants can visit the poster galleries, discover the diverse projects presented and, directly interact with the presenters via video chat. Networking has never been easier.

  • Poster Session I | All posters are presenting
    Monday, 19 July 18:00 - 19:30 CEST
  • Poster Session II | All posters are presenting
    Wednesday, 21 July 11:00 - 12:30 CEST


Make the most of the virtual format – you have the possibility to enhance your poster with “annotations”. You can add up to five media (text, images, video, audio, voice) elements relevant to your project.


Poster sessions are held on Mon & Wed. You will then “present” your poster as you would do at a real conference, only via a video chat session. Here, visitors can easily pop-in and discuss with you.


Your creativity and poster skills are awarded - best participating posters, most creative video pitches, engagement on Twitter. See prize details below.


MCQST awards three of the best posters presented at MCQST2021. The prizes consist of a money prize of €150, generously donated by Menlo Systems GmbH.

A prize jury comprised of MCQST members and researchers will carefully select the top three posters.
